Completely light-hearted, with a narrator who delights in the fact there's NoFourthWall and [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] just about everything, ''George of the Jungle'' was a box-office success and relatively well-received with critics. In 2003 it got a DirectToVideo sequel, which had Christopher Showerman as George and Creator/JulieBenz as Ursula. ("[[NoFourthWall Me new George.]] [[BitingTheHandHumor Studio too cheap]] [[SelfDeprecation to pay Brendan Fraser]].")
